How To Use The Windows 10 Store

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Windows 10

One of the big changes when upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7, is the concept of the app store.

If you have an Android or iOS device, the idea of an app store is familiar. If not, it’s kind of a whole new world. The Windows Store is not a place where you go to buy software on DVD, but where you
download apps and programs for Windows 10.  The app store is actually an app itself. The shortcut looks a little bit like a shopping bag. Click it to open the app.


The store will open with a start page.


The store also sells videos, movies, music, and other Microsoft products. But for this article, we’re looking for apps (programs), so we’ll click the apps tab.


You’ll be able to browse apps by categories, by popularity, or by cost. There’s a ton of free apps available.


You can also search for apps in the search box at the top of the page by type, name, or category. For example, you could search for “word processing” or “solitaire.”  Or if you want to see games, “card games.” Or just type the name of an app like “Facebook.”


Click on an app and you’ll be taken to a page where you see can learn more about it, read reviews, and check out screenshots.


If the app is free, just click the get button to install it on your PC. It usually just takes a minute or two.


You can also find apps in the store by searching for them in the Start Menu search box. Many apps can be installed just by clicking on the result.
